Claret

When I write a novel for nanowrimo, I like to doodle characters.

Or maybe I don’t like to so much as I just do it anyway.

Bar

The people who frequent bars are interesting.

Not the groups who come to meet and drink, but the people who come out by themselves to drink.

Sumi

Years ago I played a bit with japanese sumi ink.

I can’t remember if I mentioned or not, my decision to attend art school in Philadelphia to study fine art.

The school there was just too good, and I had to say no to studying abroad at the schools either Paris or London 😩

I guess that’s what you get when you know exactly what you want from an art school.

Collage

So ages ago I had a stack of old comics and magazines from a used bookstore that I bought for the purpose of collaging, just for fun. I guess I’ll be posting a couple older things over the next few days, mostly because I’m still in a rut.

I find it interesting to see when a collage becomes either something with a solid idea, very tangible, or absolutely abstract. It’s one of those things that I hate to plan. instead I like to chop up a bunch of stuff and just put it where it feels like it wants to go.

Bokkie

Forgot I had this one.

Slowly but surely I am working my way out of this artists block.

Back again

So I took a little break, not really on purpose, but there it is.

Before I get back to normal updating, I just felt like throwing this out there, mostly because whenever I see it, I just think, “This is so damn French.” And I want to mention it to someone, but there’s never anyone around.

Il a mis le café
Dans la tasse
Il a mis le lait
Dans la tasse de café
Il a mis le sucre
Dans le café au lait
Avec la petite cuiller
Il a tourné
Il a bu le café au lait
Et il a reposé la tasse
Sans me parler

Il a allumé
Une cigarette
Il a fait des ronds
Avec la fumée
Il a mis les cendres
Dans le cendrier
Sans me parler
Sans me regarder

That’s it, though just a chunk! Who is it by, Jaques Prevert I think?
